I have not managed to eat out anywhere yet and not feel glutened the next day.

Our local Italian restaurant does gluten free people in a special pan ( :) ) reserved for gluten free and I have salad (olive oil only) but it still gets me every time :( .

I think there is just too much gluten going on in most kitchens and of course, flour in the air, etc must tend to get everywhere. Realistically, a busy commercial kitchen is not likely to have sensitive cc issues under complete control!

 

As for laundry detergent - a couple of years ago I changed ours from a general one (various makes) to a environmentally friendly, no harsh chemicals, etc one and am certain I can tell a difference, especially with underwear and bedding - it's just different and makes your body more at ease  :ph34r:  no kidding!! Not suggesting this is anything to do with gluten, but on a chemical front - it makes you think.

Just to apologise ...

I thought that I was responding at the bottom of page 1 - so now I look completely off topic.

I think I'm losing the plot today :blink: .

To get your guts to play nicely you have to treat them nicely. High quality probiotics; digestive enzymes; L-glutamine, all will help them out, to repopulate your gut with the good guys, to digest your food, and to promote healing. (Providing you have killed off your SIBO :ph34r: )

Thanks. What constitutes a high quality probio? I am taking one but have no idea if its good or not?! Also what kind of food repopulates good bacteria? I once heard that green juices are good start? Though cant find any info on that! Will look into the digestive enzymes too.

I have no idea if I need any of this! All I know is that my 'movements' are still not right all the time, and my gi seems to make too much noise sometimes! I am eating a lot of veg though so who knows! I almost wish they could take another look inside to tell me if I am on track or not. Ugh. So frustrating.

Thanks though

I have not eaten out once yet. In 5 months. I'm far too scared. The UK are too behind the times with celiac for me to trust. I don't even trust celiac UK website much for their info... Very basic.

Interesting about the bed sheets. And laundry... Might give that a go... I am becoming hateful of chemicals these days and anything 'manufactured'!

Hmmmm you know, I am wondering if a baked potato might be safe for me to eat out? I could leave the skin maybe? Anyway, I'm rambling off on one now!!

:D

I think a lot of the probiotics are the same?  I was told at the Mayo Clinic to take one that contains lactobacilus acudophilos to keep yeast in check.  Other than that, I'd say switch brands from time to time to get a balance of various strains.  Some contain soy or dairy and I wouldn't recommend those. 

 

Probiotic foods include those foods that are fermented.  Kombucha tea, sour kraut, kimchee, keffir, Greek style yogurts that aren't full of sugar (if you tolerate dairy).

 

Green juices help replenish your digestive enzymes.  They might help if it seems like you are digesting things well.  If you are still having issues, I wouldn't overdo the fibrous veggies.  Be sure that they agree with you.  When healing some foods can irritate your system.

 

If you are having growly noises in your tummy it usually means your system is struggling with digesting..usually carbs.  A digestive enzyme supplement can really help.  I wouldn't take it with absolutely everything you eat, but if you are eating beans, peas, fatty foods, fibrous foods, they'd be a lot of help.

 

Healing can be a slow process.  We stop eating gluten and think we are magically going to feel great.  The truth is..it takes some time.  You will have "up" days and "down" days.  Keep a food/symptom log and if something doesn't agree with you, omit it, or limit it for a while. If you have a set-back, tell yourself these things happen, and try to do better. :unsure:

Thanks bubbasmom, that was really useful info. I will look for a probio containing that. I don't think mine does. I will start my food diary again. I stopped it a few weeks ago as I was kinda told not to bother (ie. I was being premature keeping one) but with hindsight it did help. In 4 months it helped me figure out some of my allergies and intolerances. Albeit now I'm stuck on a very restricted diet :( but! Onwards and upwards. Advice and help greatly appreciated :) you guys rock... Thanks

I was first DXed in July 2011.  I started keeping a food log when going gluten-free didn't stop a lot of my weird symptoms and just kept it up out of habit.  It's really helpful in figuring out some of the odd intolerances.  Just last week I made split pea soup and found I was very depressed the day after I ate it.  Skipped a couple of days and had it for lunch and got the same symptoms.  While not life threatening or anything, it was interesting to make the connection.  Without the log I don't think I would have made the connection?

 

I totally get how hard it is to live on a resticted diet.  I basically eat Paleo, except I can't have eggs now (because the winter feed has soy and it comes through to the egg) or any dairy.  I limit tomatoes and peppers because I know they can be irritating to my system.

 

Oh well...it won't be forever?  We'll get ourselves healed and straightened out and then we can start adding things back! :D

    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.
